Updated news

Hiya my sweet blogger friends. Sorry I've been MIA for awhile but I've been going thru a bit of a rough spot. As some of you may have seen/read, I was given another medical "hurdle" to jump over, a while back. I had a biopsy taken and was given the results a week ago. I didn't take them very well, at all. :-(

You see, when I went to see my Specialist, he didn't have the results, yet. He received them later that day and told them to me, over the phone. Basically what he said was: I had a mild form of a disease and it goes:- mild, moderate, severe, Cancer, and we'll see you in 6 mos. to see how everything is.

I completely "shut down", didn't ask any questions at all because all I heard was the "C" word. I basically became mentally and physically sick for the entire week. I went to see my GP today and he told me that I should never have been told the results that way. And......you ready for this one?? -- that my "mild" case was just that: "mild" and it may never carry on to the next stage. Obviously it might and could but, for the time being, I'm alright. I had already had myself boxed and buried. And to put it mildly -- I have been to "hell" and back. Horrific experience.

So, I am just soooooo thankful and feel sooooo blessed right now and I wanted to share that w/ you!

I was really upset, too, over the fact that I was finally getting a Gypsy (it's at Customs!!) and I wouldn't be able to enjoy it. How sad is that, eh? --- thinking those thoughts? And li'l Bailey --- how would he deal w/ all of this? Just from what I've written above, you can see how I was a mental wreck! My sweet hubby was awesome throughout all of it. He was my "rock". I am soooo lucky to have him!!

And....I've certainly learned something from all of this:- ask questions! ask a LOT of questions!

But, by the same token, that Specialist should've volunteered that information, too! At least the part:- don't worry for now. But, nope! Couldn't say that!! :-(

I hope you all have a wonderful day! I know I will! The sun is shining brightly just like my eyes, right now!! :-)

ADDITION:-
I may have not been clear in what happened:- it was the Specialist that called me on the phone and told me that, because he didn't have the results when I was there for my first appointment. My doctor's office hadn't received them either. There was "another party" involved who didn't get the results to the right people, in time. It was my sweet, dear doctor who finally put my mind at ease, yesterday. The whole situation was one BIG schmozzle! (sp?) :-( There's more to the story, but I just wanted to give a general gist of it. :-)

Thanks, everyone, for all of your sweet comments. For whatever reason, they're not showing up on my blog, even tho I'm receiving them via an e-mail notification.

  2. I was just thinking about you today Linda and was going to drop you an e-mail and then just seen your post. Sorry you had a bad week. Good thing your Hubs and Bailey were there for you. I could just imagine how you felt and if you ever need to chat just drop me a line. Don't know how much help I'll be but I'm here with a shoulder and an ear if you need it. Take Care and it looks like your trying to keep your chin up. I think that is the best medicine. I'll say a prayer for you and your family and you are in my thoughts. Take it easy and do some creative therapy to get your mind off of things. You have my e-mail if you need anything.
